I don't interact with Postfix.  I also don't interact with the
kernel.  I interact with things that interact with those -- Gnus, and 
Emacs, for example.  But many of the commands I run don't give me any
output; they just change the state of the world in some way.  Often,
those ways are not perceivable to me.
